Blight Fight

Two Freret-area homeowners are in danger of losing their homes, and neighbors are joining forces to try to save the day. One of the houses (pictured) is currently being worked on but is still considered a target property for blight issues. The other house is in dire need of a new roof. "The scary thing with the city is not knowing," said one of the homeowners. "I understand, the people that are back, we don't want them to live next to something no one's taken care of. But if people are back, I don't think the city should be fighting them in that process." [Uptown Messenger]
